This is a long shot, but it might be a dictation error. If the original text was dictated, perhaps whoever typed it misconstrued "d.d" to be "b.b." d.d. = de dato (dated (on...)).
But I'm afraid that to be sure, one would have to see the actual context.
HTH, Will

I am not too sure because there is not much context to go on, but I have come across this abbreviation before in legal text. THe translation I usually use is 'already cited'.
